IT_13/01 Rev. 0 , May- 2012


The environment and its conservation status is currently one of the problems that modern society faces . The marinas and activities that they develop can be generating negative impacts on the environment . Currently , the marine environment is suffering the consequences of increasing environmental pollution due to the mismanagement of natural resource exploitation . This situation is particularly delicate in the marinas , since its location and the nature of the activities taking place on their premises , are likely to cause environmental conditions around them.

Marinas should be aware and take responsibility for its behavior in the preservation of the environment of the port to prevent the loss of marine biodiversity and, ultimately , the gradual deterioration of the state of the environment and encourage your feedback .

As a result of all this from the YACHT CLUB OF SAN VICENTE he decided on the implementation of a quality management system based on UNE 188004 .

This code of good environmental practices is aimed at all staff working for or on behalf of YACHT CLUB OF SAN VICENTE and all users thereof.

In order to minimize the negative impact that products, processes and services YACHT CLUB OF SAN VICENTE disclosed some simple practices that support and involvement of all personnel entering the facility itself or be hired by clients to maintenance will allow us to reduce environmental disturbances that are generated as a result of our activities.



The offices are a source of consumption of natural resources and generate a particular type of waste. Should take practical and simple measures to minimize these issues.

1. In the case of waste:

or Place each type of waste in the corresponding container.

There are special waste management and that are associated with integrated management systems such as batteries, small batteries , fluorescent tubes , printer cartridges and toners.

o Use rechargeable or alkaline batteries failing , since they have a longer life .

Do not remove the toner or when the first signs of exhaustion den , move , shake and replace .

Two . In the case of paper

Try to reuse or drafts or fax paper used on one side .

o Use recycled paper and lighter weight whenever possible .

Avoid excess or photocopies of brochures and fact sheets .

o Use of computer communication to reduce the use of printers and faxes.

or Using the previous vista before printing to avoid mistakes.

or printing in draft quality to avoid the waste of ink.

Three . In the case of materials

or Buy recycled products (paper , ink cartridges , etc.). whenever possible .

Use or while supplies last working materials : pencils , erasers , note pads , pens , etc. .

Reuse or waste of resources and used to give alternative uses (boxes, folders, etc. . ) .

or using products that do not require batteries or cells , for example, solar powered calculators .

or Choose products with minimal packaging to reduce waste generation .

Did you know that every 10 containers for recycling paper cutting 1 tree will prevent the consumption of 250 liters of oil pollution or 25000 liters of water?

April . Management and use of plastics

or Place the cups and plastic bottles used in the correct manner , avoiding mixing with other waste.

Use glass or glasses instead of plastic cups.

Reuse or plastic containers .

May . Office Cleaning
- Use cleaning products that are non-aggressive to the environment , avoid using substances containing phosphates or chlorine.
- Follow the manufacturer's instructions on dosage .
- Use products whose containers are recyclable .
- Do not use solvents or listed as potentially dangerous products .
- Use the material exhausting life to their fullest potential .

6. Electricity consumption in the office
- Ensure off all lights and electrical devices once finished the workday at the office.
- Use equipment with more energy-efficient (class A, excellent performance with lower consumption).
- Avoid heat losses by closing doors and windows.
- Use devices excellent comfort ranges ( 20 º C in winter and 24 º C in summer). In summer a degree less energy consumption increases by 8% and a degree in winter 10% more energy .
- Replace old incandescent bulbs with fluorescent -based systems ( even 80 % saving and last 8 times longer ) .

Did you know that fluorescent bulbs can last 10 times longer than incandescent ?


Everyday tasks on boats that are moored at the dock , can produce a significant impact on the marine environment. While the ship remains in the mooring recommends users :
- Further information on the port offices on how to proceed for the deposit of waste generated in the boat.
- Ensure that companies making us maintaining boats make a rational use of resources and proper management of depositing waste in the containers provided for this purpose .
- Use the toilets , changing rooms and other basic services port instead of the boat.
- Domestic waste generated in the vessel must be deposited in appropriate containers before going sailing .
- Respect the natural environment during undocking operations , mooring and traffic port facilities.
- Use only water to flush the boats after making a journey.


The slipway or dry dock is a place specifically enabled for cleaning and " winter storage " vessel . Therefore , it is important to analyze what activities there are developed and best practices that can be applied are .

In the area " hibernaje " recommended priority Boat stay with little use here.

Often this workspace is also used to perform the usual how to repair operations and maintenance of vessels to mechanical level (small engine repair, oil changes, painted, place etc.

In the operations in the slipway or dry dock, the following are recommended :

1. For hull cleaning

Good practices in cleaning operations help to minimize the polluting potential of the water from washing, to reduce waste generation and optimize water consumption . Water from washing operations should be properly treated. Recall that the direct and indirect discharge of water from the cleaning of vessels at sea is prohibited.
- Use preferably biodegradable detergents . Do not use detergents with phosphates, as they contribute to hypoxia or lack of oxygen in the waterways, impacting significantly on the flora and fauna.
- Use cleaning substances whose composition does not appear in any solvent.
- Sometimes it is sufficient to apply pressure water to remove embedded dirt .
- Keep containers containing cleaning products tightly sealed .
- Use the appropriate dose in the application of paints , and in any case follow the instructions given by the manufacturer.
- Perform a first cleaning whenever possible , for example by brushes. This is achieved twofold , reduce the amount of chemicals to use products and , therefore , potential contaminant, and save water consumption .
- To optimize the consumption of the substances used in the cleaning of hulls , thus reduce the number of packaging waste produced .
- Use the dosage recommended by the manufacturer for each of the substances used.
%u25E6 Use preferably cloth rags and not paper for cleaning operations.
%u25E6 Place containers of cleaning products used in the existing separate collection containers preventing them from mixing with other waste.
- The containers which have contained dangerous substances should be treated as hazardous waste , depositing them in the appropriate container for this purpose .
- Place rags and cleaning contaminated material in appropriate containers. Those containing remains of dangerous substances ( solvents , oils, etc. . ) Must be deposited in special containers for dangerous substances.
- Use pressurized water guns with automatic stop.
- Use the minimum amount of water possible.
- Cleaning should be done when really needed, avoiding unnecessary or parts cleaning , since carry a greater volume of water to be used.

Two . In the case of boat hibernaje 

The boat for as long as it remains stranded at the port must be properly prepared .
- Inspect and clean the bilges of the boat before it is beached or stored for an extended period of time.
- Conduct a thorough inspection of the vessel so as to ensure that there are no leaks of fluid mechanics .
